Thanks to Garth at Dark Horizons I am made aware of the trailer for the fan made film The Hunt for Gollum, which will go live online in full on May 3rd. The official site for the film tells us the story, which is entirely independent of anything relating to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings or the upcoming Hobbit films, follows the Heir of Isildur; the “greatest huntsman and traveler in Middle Earth” as he sets out to find the creature Gollum. The creature must be found to discover the truth about the Ring, and to protect the future Ringbearer.
The 40-minute film will be made available for free to download online and was made on a small Â£3000 ($4,355) budget, and as Garth says, “You’d never know it judging from the trailer below which makes it look like it cost a hell of a lot more.”
Give it a watch below.
